Omar and Cedric: If This Ever Gets Weird

Germany2023documentary127'International DocFilmMusic Competition

This film has the dynamics of progressive rock, the preferred genre of the cult American band Mars Volta for over twenty years. The lives of its founders, Cedric Bixler and Omar Rodríguez-López, unfolded in similar rhythms. They were in for a truly bumpy ride marked by ethnic diversity, drugs, stage excesses and a fling with scientology. The film edited out of hundreds of hours of archival footage (Omar documented himself and his close ones) is a painfully honest portrayal of long-term friendship, joint successes, transformations and failures.
